I join with other comments. Hard to describe all the spices that rum is included. Worth trying. Me and my friend's favorite beverage !


Smell of typical czech 4 Euro rum leads to taste of typical romanian 6 Euro cognac and finishes with typical russian hangover for free.


As an IT professional I might have some prejudices. It's not a bad rum, but on the other hand it has nothing to offer. It's just like calling from UK to British telecom helpdesk and ending up in Bangalore. It does the job but that's it. Let me try another sip...


Was really looking forward to this one, but was let down pretty quickly. First impression on the nose right away was strong vanilla and melted plastic. The first tastes (straight up) reinforce the nose. I had to do a double take and make sure I wasn't just drinking vanilla extract. They seem pretty close. I'm going to have to go fairly low on my impression of this right now, but I've got plenty of time to reevaluate as I've got a whole bottle. It may be something that needs to be acquired over time.


Can't seem to define the very harsh flavour of this rum, definately not like any other. Not the worst rum I have tasted but would not buy again, interesting nether the less.


A nice rum for those who can't spend too much money. Qutie tasty, but not brilliant.


This is good rum, but should be taken as spiced rum. It is nice but it is almost to full of spice.


Harsh flavours and severe alcohol aftertaste. Lacks nay depth of flavour and for the price there is much better alternatives available.


Je to fakt bida. Druhy indicky rum a opet zklamani. Chut po bramborach...


I know this is a bizarre review but I am now on bottle number 3 which have been consumed over the previous 18 months or so. I can't quite work out why I don't hate this rum but then also cannot throw it out of my collection. Sometimes it tastes so strong and the smell knocks my sideways then other times it hurts so good! I'm at war with myself over the Old Monk and love it someday and hate it somedays I guess he will be here to stay so is that a bad thing or a great thing? Sometimes too bitter and lacking sweetness then surprises me with a mouthfuls of mild caramel eschews and treacle with coffee kicks. Not a rum for the fainthearted this is a thinking man's rum, but then I am not a thinking man! Oh dear Old Monk please help?


Although it has an interesting smell. The taste leaves you wanting something more. I will never buy it again.

Multă ciocolată neagră, faptul că are 42,8 alc. Salveaza oarecum simplitatea acestui rom indian. Ușor amar.


It is certainly not a complex and intriguing rum, but one you can have after a cheap/mid priced dinner at a Indian restaurant


I like this stuff, cool bottle, nice brown rum. Makes a good rum cake too!


one of the best rums ive had in the affordable price range (in US its between 16-25$. in mass ~20-24$)

great taste. solid sipper with some ice. makes a fantastic rum & coke. strong vanilla and other spices. i enjoy it alot and its my go to rum because of price and quality. always have one in my stock :)

i got alot of friends into rum by having them try this bad boy


Saw this bottle in the clearance bin and took a chance. I enjoy smooth sipping rum with a good cigar. Won't slam this one too much but.., definitely for mixing.


Very cheap - bought for 5 usd on airport in Emirates. The taste is on the same level with price - very bad. It taste similar like "local" version of rum from my country that was made from potatoes...

The absolute winner when compared to other rums by price. It has a little of everything, spices, fruits, vanilla but all of it well-dosed. Could be a little milder though.


Glad I tried it, but no rush to try another bottle.
not the worst i've tasted so far.


nothing special to drink but quite useful as a baking ingredient.


Nice caramel flavor with some molasses too. Really good rum and nice and cheap.


This rum came highly recommended at a favorable price by my local rum merchant. Initially it has a medicine smell but the taste is not bad. Savor it a bit and swallow, the after taste is slightly citrus and maybe a little peppery. It leaves my mouth feeling a bit dry, then more of a slight hint of grapefruit flavour. I wouldn't make this my go to rum but not bad for the price.


A coffee candy aroma and strong alcohol. Impressive, but it is impossible to enjoy for a long time.


I bought this rum in Goa. For about $2.00.
Yup, that's right. And maybe that colors my judgement.

It has a nose that reminds you a lot of rum-raisin icecream and the taste is actually quite nice, but you can't get away from the feeling that it is almost as a liqueur, tasting like it's flavored with rum essence. But it isn't too sweet, the taste is quite rich in it's essence, but it fades away quickly. Prominent taste of burnt sugar, and fudge, and a bit heavy on the alcohol taste. I've only tasted it straight up, so I don't know how it mixes as a drink, or how it taste with ice, but I imagine there are better choices. Definitely worth $2 though!
